Join us as we gather together for camaraderie and connection, sharing in our unique role and its  blessings and challenges.  We will be exploring the following questions in an effort to discover ways to live out this calling in light of the season we are each in and God’s customized design for each of us:

  • What is working and what is NOT working?
  • What do I wish my husband understood about me and this role?
  • What do I wish our congregation understood about me/us?

Coffee/tea and delectable sweets will be served, compliments of CIFT Counseling.

Ministry Training: The Reality of Trauma

Wednesday, November 7th  |  9:00am-3:00pm

Trinity United Presbyterian Church

 

Trauma, loss, pain and suffering are a part of our human experience. As hard as we try, we can neither escape nor avoid them. During this CIFT Ministry Training, we will engage the tension trauma creates within ourselves, our relationship with God, and our care for others. The event will consist of 3 sessions, presented by CIFT clinicians who specialize in trauma response, recovery and treatment.

 

Here are some questions we’ll consider:

  • What is trauma and how do we respond to it?
  • Can we fully experience pain while remaining hopeful?
  • What are our theologies of pain and suffering? Where is God amidst pain and suffering?
  • Where do we turn to for help?
  • What is an appropriate response to the pain, suffering and trauma of another?

 

We hope you can join us on November 7th as we gather together to better understand the reality of trauma, enhance our care efforts, and highlight available resources.
